Last year, two babies in Arizona developed Legionnaires’ Disease after their mothers labored in birthing pools. Since then, I’ve seen parenting magazines and websites decrying water birth as dangerous and Legionnaires’ Disease as just one more piece of “proof”.

These claims are not informed by current research or by the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists’ stance on water immersion during labor. 

So, the second video in the “Let Me Level With You” series is dedicated to setting the record straight on Legionnaires’ Disease and water birth.

Feel free to share this video any time someone posts misinformation about this subject on social media. Enjoy!
